Backups

Scripts

These scripts were made for Debian and Ubuntu

mysql-Hot_Backup-One_database

Backup one database in a compressed dump file. For a hot backup every 30 minutes put something like this in a new file in /etc/cron.d:

MAILTO=root
*/30 * * * *    root /usr/local/scripts/mysql-Hot_Backup-One_database <mysql_root_passwd> <OD_database> <directory>

and restart cron:

/etc/init.d/cron restart

backup-system-total-consul

Backup OD A-Z files, system config and a mySQL cold backup Configure the script and put it in your /etc/cron.daily

Misc

Download Manual

To download full user manual and images and recreate internal links structure for off line reading use:

wget -c -t 50 -T 5 -w 1 -e robots=off -r -k -I manual,images http://www.open-dent.com/manual/toc.html

Multiple servers

OpenDent to another server

  1. Make backup of existing files using the backup feature in the manage module. One of those USB Flash Drives work well.
  2. Install OD in new server. Be sure to install as Server (includes MySQL).
  3. Run OD on the new server and go to the Manage module. Select the backup/restore function.
  4. Restore from the backup.

Very easy. You could also do it by copying the database folder (Opendental) and the A-Z folders.

Multiple monitors

This is how it done

  1. Hardware. A new dual-head video card (or add another video card to your existing computer) and 2 monitors
  2. You know you can open 2 (or more) OD window by just clicking at OD icon one more time, then move that new OD window to the other monitor.
